Private breastfeeding support and workshops are also available during your pregnancy for you to discover more about breastfeeding a newborn, or may begin with breastfeeding support once baby arrives.

Lactation support and holistic, evidence based infant feeding information whilst your find your feet in the early days is an important part in successfully establishing breastfeeding for you and your baby.

Lactation Support in Cheshire

If you prefer to have one to one breastfeeding support in your own home, do not worry if you have not had any contact with me during your pregnancy or birth, I offer a private, one to one breastfeeding support drop in service which can be standalone or inclusive of your postnatal support. If you would like to know more about private breastfeeding support in Cheshire, Manchester and beyond, please send me an email for details.

If you wish to have a standalone, bespoke Breastfeeding Support package in place for the early days after your newborn arrives, I can be available anytime of the day or night, 7 days a week for the first 6 weeks after birth to support your choice of infant feeding and refer you to any specialised breastfeeding support if needed and where appropriate.

Private breastfeeding support sessions can be tailored from 45 minute sessions to a few hours so can be adjusted to suit your needs. If you wish, I can also attend your local Breastfeeding support groups with you and I have good links with relevant Healthcare Professionals to signpost you to specialist advice in the NHS and to a Private Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in case of more complex issues such as tongue tie.
